    When I am told by someone that I will go to hell for eternity if I do not believe in Jesus, it peaks my curiousity. I wonder: why is going to hell such a big deal?

    And it turns out that it is a VERY big deal to the person that believes it.

    And to then extrapolate that same damnation to everyone worldwide that does not believe in Jesus...that's just bullshit.

    I would like to ask two questions (to those who believe the above):

    WHY IS YOUR RELIGION THE ONLY CORRECT ONE?

    ...and...

    WHY IS THE PENALTY FOR NOT BELIEVING IT SO HARSH?

    Not all Christians are full of hate for others who believe differently than them xotoxi.

    There are many that are full of love and tolerance for others that have different faiths.

    Don't compare a small group on here who are promoting their hate and intolerance to all Christians!

    If we discussed this it would be just flamed. People go by what they now and understand. if you do not know what hell is or if you do not believe what difference would it make. It is a personal thing.

    I'm sorry if I made it sound like a generalization. I definitely do not think that the majority of Christians believe this.

    My questions are directed to that small minority of Christians (or any religion) that for some strange reason has the notion that they are right and everyone else is wrong.

    Being raised a Christian, and having spoken with many spiritual family members, I am of the mindset that no one is right and no one is wrong with whatever they believe, as long as they do not hurt others.

    I also strongly feel that those who hurt others in the name of their religion are just evil individuals, and they are mis-interpreting their religion.

    So, again, this is not directed to the mainstream Christians or people who are religious...it is directed to the Fred Phelps-like people who are lurking about.
